In the heart of Kolkata, where modern meets vintage, here for the love of good music and food, Black brick cafe has left the best impressions! Hospitable hosts, delicious dishes, beautiful presentation, wide list of food including thai and burmese, shisha and wonderful desserts.
Sizzlers make for a fun choice of food especially with its hint of drama, the hiss of the steam from the metal plate, delicious aromas wafting by and the tangy sauces coating the choice of protein. A palatable picturesque arrangement of blazing hot grilled, roasted and/or fried meats or vegetables served on a sweltering plate along with sauces and sides is the perfect meal summed up. Black brick Cafe has added a variety of sizzlers to their regular menu, encompassing the love of Kolkatans for the iconic dish. Located in Bhowanipore, the restaurant has a whole section of their menu dedicated to their signature sizzlers. Available in both vegetarian and non-veg options, the delightful sizzlers combine the flavours of the world to bring an authentic culinary experience along with generous portions.
Vishal Marwaha, the co-director of the Black Brick Café said, ‘As Kolkatans are indulgent foodies and sizzlers are an eternal favourite so we thought of starting this sizzler extravaganza, specially made for those who want to experience a smoking hot treat especially during the monsoons. The response has been phenomenal and we are happy that this idea generated this much interest. Our café, which has been here for nearly two years have always tried to incorporate some new dishes and with the accessible price point we are looking forward to the next phase. I would highly recommend everyone to try the Italian Job Sizzler and the Chelo kebab Sizzler for sure.’
Besides a galore of lip-smacking vegetarian and non-vegetarian delectables, foodies can also savour the taste of Asia, Mexico, India and Italy at the fiesta! For the lovers of everything Mediterranean, patrons can start off with the Italian Job, where exotic veggies paired with spaghetti and arrabiata sauce and served with garlic bread takes one on a primo journey, the Grilled Murg Makhanwala is a desi take on the classic with Murg Makhani, sauteed veggies, cheesy potatoes are served with herbed rice for a spicy kick, the Grilled Paneer Makhanwala is the vegetarian iteration with a slab of creamy paneer grilled to perfection. For those going the oriental route, the Dragon encompasses a sizzling plate of hakka noodles or rice, singing chicken and kimchi, Bangkok on a Wok mingles the classic Pad Krapow Gai sizzler with flavourful basil rice and raw papaya salad, the Mexican has spicy mexican rice, beans, assorted veggies, potato wedges, tortilla chips with a choice of either chicken strips or cottage cheese encased in a fiery chipotle sauce. The newest addition is the Chelo Kebab Sizzler, which evokes the familiar comfort of a hearty Chelo kebab which includes two varieties of kebabs, buttered rice and a poached egg on a smoking hot plate.
